What's On My Library Request List?

Every so often I like to update you on what I've requested from my library. Sometimes this is frightening, but I refuse to be embarrassed by what I like to read. Yeah, that's it. Rawr!

Thursday Night Widows by Claudio Pineiro - I saw this on a list of books translated from the Spanish. This one is by an Argentinian writer, I think. I'm first on the list for it.

The Casual Vacancy DVD - I liked the book by J.K. Rowling, so I thought I'd check out the TV show, but to be real honest, I don't know how much I'll get watched. It takes an act of Congress to get me to sit still in front of the TV that long.

Undermajordomominor by Patrick DeWitt - This is the sequel to The Sisters Brothers that I enjoyed a couple of years ago. It's funny, but kind of gory and so, so wrong.

Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson - This is the audiobook version. I bought the hardcover one the other day, but I couldn't bring myself to cancel the request for this. She reads her own works and she's hilarious.

Deep South: Four Seasons on Back Roads by Paul Theroux - I love travel narratives and Theroux is the king of the travel narrative. And it's about the South, a place I am a little afraid of but also fascinated by.

Why Is This Night Different From All The Others by Lemony Snicket - This is for my daughter. This series is weird and funny and mysterious.

Lafayette in the Somewhat United States by Sarah Vowell - Vowell makes history interesting. I have liked, if not loved, all her past books. Really looking forward to this one.

Lumberjanes vol. 2 - This is a graphic novel about a group of girl campers who have to do battle with the supernatural on the daily.

Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith - This is the third book in the Cormoran Strike series by J.K. Rowling. I think it's just a great series.

Tricky Twenty-Two by Janet Evanovich - I'm really annoyed that I forgot to keep checking for this one. Now I'm number 227 on the hold list. When I get it, it will probably smell like cigarette smoke.

The Cairo Trilogy by Naguib Mahfouz - I only intend to read the first one to take care of my reading challenge to read a book by an author from Africa.

So that's it. Kind of a long list, but hopefully they won't all come in at once.
